Buffalo Murder Mystery

A Prohibition Murder Mystery Dinner To Die For!

“Death at the Distillery”-Fridays and Sundays in November

The year is 1927 and alcohol is flowing across the Niagara River to satisfy Buffalo’s insatiable thirst for bootlegged booze and brews.  “Death at the Distillery” is based on real-life characters that lived and schemed in Buffalo during prohibition, this interactive performance includes a magnificent dinner–served at Lakeward Spirits at the Barrel Factory in the city’s historic Old First Ward.  If you have enjoyed our murder mysteries at RiverWorks, on the Spring Lake Winery Train, Canalside, the Hotel Lafayette or aboard the big red double decker bus–then you’ll love this performance that is written and staged by the same people.

Lakeward Spirits at the Barrel Factory is a beautifully restored 1903 industrial building that included the city’s largest distillery, a winery, a new craft brewery and off street parking.
